Gianluca di Marzio is reporting that AC Milan's first prospective signing for the summer transfer window Pierre Kalulu arrived in Milano yesterday. The former Lyon defender chose not to sign a professional contract with the club and will join Milan on a bosman deal. He is expected to undergo his medicals today.
Milan beat Bayern Munich to his signature as Paolo Maldini convinced him of the project. However Milan have lost out to Bayern in the pursuit of Tanguy Kouassi from PSG as his move to Germany on a bosman is being reported by Bild.
